Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Obviously, this is gross to eat anything that came from your own body. I didn’t pick my scabs and then eat them, nor have I ever any desire to eat the placenta of a child I gave birth to.
But do you know, eating your placenta or afterbirth is called placentophagy? Placentophagy is supposed to be very good for you because it’s packed with vitamins, minerals, and hormones that can help with postpartum depression.
So, can you imagine that using vaginal sections can make yogurt?
An MD/ Ph.D. student from the University of Wisconsin, Madison had joked before about making yogurt from vaginal secretions and named the product ‘Queeffer’.
Then a Google search was performed and: nothing. Not even in medical literature. Curiosity piqued, Westbrook began to research in earnest. What choice did she have but to try it herself?
Every vagina is full of different types of bacteria and organisms. These organisms are known as the vaginal community which produces lactic acid, hydrogen peroxide, and other substances that keep the vagina healthy. The dominant bacteria is called lactobacillus, which also happens to be what people sometimes use to culture milk, cheese, and yogurt.
